The German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung) has informed that there are currently no proven cases in which people have become infected with the corona-virus (SARS-CoV-2) through contact with dry surfaces. Transmissions from surfaces that were recently contaminated with viruses are conceivable through smear infections. However, due to the relatively low stability of coronaviruses in the environment, this is only possible in a short period of time after contamination and is unlikely according to current knowledge. A transmission of coronaviruses to humans usually occurs via the air as droplet infection. (Status: 24.02.2020)
The Robert Koch Institute, the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment and the German Federal Ministry of Health recommend preventive measures. Due to the highly dynamic development in the spread of the coronavirus in Europe, we in the THIMM Group have introduced preventive measures at all locations in line with our corporate duty of care. These are actively implemented at all European locations of the THIMM Group. In addition, as part of our own risk management, we are in contact with our suppliers in order to check the effects on delivery times or delivery reliability at any time.
At the present time, we are not aware of any coronavirus cases within the THIMM Group.
